What is the Circular Economy and How Can Ohio Support It?

The circular economy is a system for regenerating and restoring by design. By optimizing resources through reuse and recycling, waste is designed out of the process. Using this business model decreases or eliminates landfill and waste disposal fees, generates new products and services, and provides energy savings. Designers, engineers and business employees at all levels can achieve these goals.

Life Cycle Assessment – A Tool to Improve Your Environmental Impacts
